OnePlus CEO has tactically put an end to rumors surrounding its next flagship launch date ( OnePlus 6 ). The company’s CEO Pete Lau in an interview with CNET has confirmed that the sequel to the OnePlus 5T could arrive as early as June 2018. Pete confirmation is in line with a purported list of smartphones arriving in 2018 with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 chipset on board which surfaced earlier with June as the arrival date.
Though the CEO didn’t reveal exactly when the device will be unveiled, He was simply quoted as saying: “the next OnePlus phone could come late in the second quarter, in line with the OnePlus 5’s arrival last year”. On the preferred chipset of choice for the OnePlus 6, the CEO said his company is left with no other choice than the Snapdragon 845.
Lau further confirmed to Cnet that he wasn’t so sure if the company will be releasing a second phone in 2018, even though it did so in 2017 and 2016 with the launch of OnePlus 5T and OnePlus 3T. Pei said his company will soon release a beta version of the company’s Face Unlock feature, which was introduced in the 5T to the OnePlus 3 and 3T.
Following its recent partnership with carriers in Europe, the CEO said it is opened to discussion on the possibility of a US partner.
